Over 16,000 Semifinalists were named in the 68th annual National Merit Scholarship Program, and three are seniors at North Broward Prep in Coconut Creek.

These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,250 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $28 million that will be offered next spring.

A PK12 private, boarding, and day co-educational college-preparatory school, North Broward Preparatory was founded in 1957 by James Montgomery.

To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition.

About 95 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and approximately half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.
